Scott Brown is back. In a three-way primary Tuesday night, he won the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire. From reporter Joshua Brown with the Boston Globe (see In N.H., Scott Brown wins Senate bid):
It would have been a bizarre fantasy five years ago, when he was a little-known state senator from Wrentham. And it would have been hard to fathom two years ago, when he was a US senator from Massachusetts.
But Tuesday night Scott Brown became the Republican nominee for Senate in New Hampshire and will now face the incumbent, Democrat Jeanne Shaheen, in what has already become a competitive and bitterly contested race that has drawn millions of dollars in attack ads from outside groups.
James Hohmann with Politico noted (see Scott Brown wins New Hampshire Senate primary):
Scott Brown won the New Hampshire Republican Senate primary Tuesday night, setting up a general election showdown with Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen.
The former Massachusetts senator, who lost to Elizabeth Warren in 2012 and became a New Hampshire citizen last December, easily defeated two main challengers, former state Sen. Jim Rubens and former U.S. Sen. Bob Smith.
